SNOW REMOVAL FROM
SIDEWALKS WITHIN 24 HOURS OR LESS AFTER STORMS
 
All properties with public sidewalks are required by City Ordinance to remove the snow within 24 hours of the end of a snow storm.  In consideration for the welfare of the walking public, everybody is asked to cooperate and see to it their sidewalk is shoveled and in a timely manner. 

Safe sidewalks are a priority for our Mayor and City Council.  We will therefore be monitoring the City sidewalks for compliance.  The Lake Geneva Municipal Code, Section 62-223, authorizes the City, or its hire, to initiate sidewalk snow removal for public safety and welfare if snow and/or ice remains on the sidewalk in excess of 24 hours after the termination of the storm.  The property owner will be billed twice the cost of labor and materials for this service (minimum of $80.00), and is also subject to daily fines of $30.00 to $50.00. 

Keeping the sidewalks safe for pedestrians requires everybody’s assistance and cooperation.  If you have any questions, please contact either City Hall at 262-248-3673 or this office.
